Clothing review – Next Summer 2016 x

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing.” 

Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

I love Next.  Since having Henry it has continued to be one of my favourite baby/toddler brands and I rarely go away empty handed.  (except in January I struggled, but you are forgiven, haha).

Next is  incredible for casual basics, but with such incredible attention to detail, each piece feels lovingly made.  From contrast pocket details, little embroideries and touches of grosgrain in back necks, they all scream added value.

& this summer they have fuelled my obsession with a good stripe, however I have to admit, now I’m all about the Flamingo motif… & for boys, who knew :o)…

Recently I popped into my local store to pick up some vests (honest Daddy) and came away armed with some key transitional pieces that could be mixed and matched.  Mummy speak for, Daddy will kill me if I need to pop back for, “just one more pair of trousers, to go with so and so”.

A month on from my mini splurge, I have to admit, the little essentials have worked their little socks off.  From basic tees for nursery worn with joggers and chambray rompers with super cute motif knits for family days out.  & yes they’ve all washed perfectly.  I even got strawberry stains out of his t-shirts as I’m still unable to embrace the bib.  Arghhhhhhh – someone find me a cool bib.

Below are some of Little Monkeys best looks (Ok I’ve added every single one) and the links… us bloggers love a link (cue laughing emoji).
